Indrahar pass

One of the most mysterious things of my childhood was a lush green mountain in front of my native home. For a long time, the peak of the mountain was the highest ever point on the earth and I always wondered to imagine the view from the top. I had believed that if my home was up there, I would have been living in the paradise. But the day when I observed the same mountain from a distant point, I was surprisedRead more

Earth: An alien land

Sometimes, the answers appear before the questions. I comprehended this aspect when a question, which never existed in my mind, got instantly fabricated after seeing the bright lights of innumerable electrical lamps, the answer, of the Kangra valley and of Dharamshala and Mcleodganj from Triund, a location which is approximately 2800 meters above the sea level on the Dhauladhar range of outer Himalayas. The question was, “How could the life on earth be discovered by the aliens, now?”     VariousRead more

Saach-pass

Whenever I see any of the mountains for the very first time, my mind starts to imagine about the view of the world from the top, the places on the peak and about the view on the other side of the mountain. This degree of fascination is proportional to the altitude and the difficulty level to hike over the mountain. Harder the mountain, the more mesmerized I feel to imagine all this.

If Technology fails

“Which telecom company’s advertisement is this still image from?” This is how my online friend Imrans’s immediate reaction came, who had assumed that the still was downloaded from the webpage of Vodafone or Airtel or any other telecommunication company. For me it was a great compliment. I realized, yes, if I were a professional photographer associated with any telecom company, I could have gained some handsome amount in my account. For a moment Imran’s words hypnotized my mind to contactRead more

Buddha Gates

During primary school days, 1st or 2nd standard I guess, I and most of my classmates used to bring down a mountain and valley landscape in our drawing notebooks, having an isolated hut in the centre of the Valley, rising sun from the lofty peaks and a river coming from the mountains and passing near the right side of the house. After two decades, I come across a place which took me back to those colourful memories. From the topRead more
